Nearly half of Folds/Mraz tickets remain unsold

A little less than half of the tickets remain for this Friday’s Jason Mraz and Ben Folds concert, sponsored by Program Board and WRGW.

Tickets for the Feb. 13 concert in the Smith Center are on sale at the Ticketmaster Box Office in the Marvin Center for $33.

When tickets went on sale on Jan. 27, students reported two-hour waits for tickets, but PB Executive Chair Tiffany Meehan said a little less than half of the 4,000 tickets still remain.

Meehan also announced that the GW Vibes, an a capella group on campus, was chosen by Ben Folds to be the show’s opening act.

Folds asked the a capella groups on campus to submit YouTube videos of themselves performing and he then chose the Vibes to be the show’s opener.

Meehan said the GW Vibes performing with an artist as famous as Ben Folds would be “an amazing opportunity for a student group to showcase in front of a large audience.”
